Question

Does BUSH'S<sup>&reg;</sup> make any Reduced Sodium products?

Answer

We have seven Reduced Sodium products available:

  • Black Beans
  • Cannellini Beans
  • Dark Red Kidney Beans
  • Garbanzo Beans
  • Great Northern Beans
  • Pinto Beans
  • Vegetarian Baked Beans

It is also possible to reduce the sodium content by draining and rinsing canned beans. University-based researchers studied the effect on sodium content when canned beans are drained and rinsed. They studied the average sodium content per serving of multiple brands of five types of popular canned beans (Red Kidney, Garbanzo, Pinto, Black, and Great Northern). All brands and all types demonstrated significant reductions in sodium after 1) draining and 2) draining followed by rinsing 10 seconds with running tap water & draining for 2 minutes. Overall, the draining treatment reduced sodium by 36% and the draining followed by rinsing reduced sodium by 41%.

The results of this study only apply to our canned beans, which are not in seasoned sauce. The research study did not include our Baked Beans, Grillin' Beans, Chili Magic or other beans in seasoned sauce.
